The head of the Donetsk administration Aleksey Kulemzin called the shelling of the city by the armed formations of Ukraine during the farewell to the Guards Colonel Olga Kachura a terrorist attack against civilians.
“This is a planned terrorist action against civilians,” he said on Thursday on the “Rossiya 24” TV channel.
Also, the mayor of Donetsk said that the death toll as a result of the shelling of the centre of Donetsk increased to six, seven more were injured.
“There is big trouble in the city, once again the city is under fire. There are dead among the civilians who came to say goodbye, there are also wounded. A pedestrian street was also shelled, the very heart of the city was shelled by heavy artillery. Currently, there are data on six dead and seven wounded. These are all civilians. The shelling is still going on,” Aleksey Kulemzin said.
In addition, the head of the administration said that a prisoner of the correctional colony was killed on Thursday in Donetsk as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, another prisoner and an employee of the penitentiary institution were wounded.
“According to the updated information, as a result of today’s shelling of the territory of the correctional colony in the Kirovsky district, a convict, a man born in 1980, died from his injuries. Another convict, a man born in 1986, received a shrapnel wound to the head. A shrapnel wound to the shoulder and a contusion was received by an employee of the institution,” said the mayor of Donetsk.
At the same time, the politician Oleg Tsarev believes that the Ukrainian authorities are blocking their military defeats in the information space with the shelling of Donetsk.
“In our modern world, virtual reality is more important than the real one. The Office of the President of Ukraine gives commands to fire on Donetsk in order to block out its military defeats in the information space. Now in Kiev, everyone is talking about the shelling of Donetsk, and not about the retreat of the UAF. Ukrainian propaganda takes an example from Poroshenko and convinces that Donetsk is being shelled by the Russians. Many believe. I am sure that they will also fire at Kiev if they need to kill their failures and form the information agenda they need,” Tsarev said on his Telegram channel.
